But if you have to share it, then disinfect it properly before and after their usage. You should also clean the clippers regularly after your personal usage.

Our hands and feet are the prime sources of having any infections and hence we should stop sharing our personal hygiene equipment, especially nail clippers. This is one of the important factors that spreads Hepatitis C specifically.
